My customer has an existing nutanix cluster running 5.0.2, using vlans for the management networking on the esx nodes.
The brand new node is connected to switchport with the relevant vlan as tagged, how do i change the vlan on the new node before deployment so that it can be seen by the prism central? This is a brand new undeployed node, fresh from the box. I just need to change the vlan it listens on.
